Minneapolis: A plan for safer streets is in the works (Vision Zero)

Minneapolis officials on Monday sketched out their vision for eliminating all traffic deaths and serious injuries on city streets in 10 years.

Mayor Betsy Hodges, who delivers her 2018 budget address at noon tomorrow, said she included $400,000 in her proposed budget to begin work on what has been dubbed the Vision Zero policy. That policy would set out specific steps to bring the number of fatalities and serious injuries resulting from traffic crashes to zero by 2027.
